Former Cicero hotel manager sentenced for thievery


Syracuse, NY – The former manager of a Cicero hotel was sentenced today to five years’ probation for stealing more than $50,000 from her employer.

Cathaline Aylmer, 40, of Utica, had nothing to say before Onondaga County Judge Joseph Fahey imposed the probationary sentence agreed to when Aylmer pleaded guilty May 11 to a felony count of second-degree grand larceny.

In pleading guilty, Aylmer admitted stealing from the Days Inn Hotel on Bartel Road from June through July 2010.

Fahey ordered Aylmer to pay $48,883.53 in restitution. Assistant District Attorney Matthew Dotzler explained at the time of Aylmer’s guilty plea that that amount would cover thefts Aylmer committed by taking cash from the hotel and by running up expenses on the corporate credit card.

A co-defendant, Brett M. Howard, 33, also of Utica, is responsible for paying back about $12,000 to cover the theft of supplies from the hotel that the defendants attempted to sell on Craigslist and eBay, the prosecution has said.

Howard, identified by authorities as Aylmer’s boyfriend, pleaded guilty last year to fourth-degree grand larceny.
